Wonderful, easy to follow, and a surprise how simple it truly is. Many say their craft is easy, but in reality is not. Thank you

Thank you for this tutorial and I will purchase your plans. It looks very simple to make. In one of your photos it shows a rug being woven that is longer than your loom. Did you just take a second dowel and place it over all of the warp strands (strands under dowel) to hold tension then loop the warp on the bottom or the third dowel as you would for a mat or small rug?

Yes I liked that the loom was made to be able to make the warp different lengths
